Wisconsin is Still Waiting on Evers to Call a Special Election for 7th CD

Heh.

Gov. Tony Evers says he is waiting for a recommendation from his legal team about when to call a special election for the congressional district being vacated by retiring U.S. Rep. Sean Duffy.

Evers told reporters Thursday that he doesn’t know yet if he will have the special election correspond with the state’s presidential primary in April. There is also state Supreme Court election that day.

[…]

The Democratic Evers said he is more concerned with finding a date that works well for that northwestern Wisconsin congressional district than one that might benefit Democrats.

Uh huh… it should take about eight minutes to check the law regarding calling a special election, pull out a calendar, and pick a date. And that date should be one of the regular election dates coming up so that it isn’t an extra cost for the taxpayers. It’s not that difficult if that is your only consideration.

If, however, you are waiting to see what Democratic candidates are jumping in, allowing party leaders to coalesce behind a favorite and get an organization together, and pick a date that gives the Democrats maximum advantage, then it takes a little longer to decide. It’s certainly Evers’ prerogative to use this duty in a way that gives his party as much advantage as possible. Let’s just not pretend that he’s doing otherwise.

    Maybe Evers doesn’t know where district is….

    OMG your blinders are so tight.  Do you remember a year ago when Walker wasn’t scheduling special elections, and why?

    And from Owen…

    Sounds like your blinders are tighter than anyone ‘roud here.  Duhhhhhhhhhh

    Jason, did you read the news article that Le Roi linked?  What did you learn there?

    The date will be the (D) Primary vote in April.  So the only things remaining are ‘who’s in?’ and ‘who’s purchasing who’s in?’

    What IS interesting is the amount of time it’s taking to find someone with the agenda of Mark Pocan and the electability of Obey in that district.

  6. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    Why is Evers not flying as fast on calling the special election as liberals demanded Walker in that article?

    What is that smell?

    Oh yeah, liberal cesspool hypocrisy.

  7. Le Roi du Nord says:

    k:

    I think your comment goes right to the heart of the problem.  You can’t, or chose not to read.

    The vacancies, that’s right VACANCIES, the walker delayed filling were vacant for 3 months.  Duffy is still in office until Sept. 23, 2019.

    The odor you are picking up is that of your single brain cell being overloaded by facts.

  8. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Evers better move fast if he is going to hold to hypocrite liberal standards on this in calling the election.

    No matter what, he is going to set date with Presidential primary to give Democrats an unfair advantage.

  9. Le Roi du Nord says:

    And what might those standards be?  Following the law, or walkers precedent?

  10. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Just want to see the fast standard libs demanded of Walker in calling election.

    Want hypocrite liberals to walk their blathering talk for once.

    Will you join me in demanding the previous liberal standard here?

  11. Le Roi du Nord says:

    Again, read for comprehension.

  12. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    So that is a “no” to ask Evers to hold same standard as liberals demanded of Walker?

    No courage.

  13. Le Roi du Nord says:

    It is a call for you to read for comprehension rather than just spout your biased opinion.

    Plenty of courage here, and I don’t need to hide behind religion to make that claim.

  14. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    So will you agree with my statement?

    Reaching across aisle for basic decency.

  15. Le Roi du Nord says:

    No.  Any again I’ll ask; what standards would those be?

  16. jjf says:

    Le Roi, when Walker was playing the game, I wonder if any of the WisGOP piped up with a call for “basic decency.”

    If they did, did they get to keep their job?  Because in Walker’s world, you build family trees of all your office staff and check those family members against the recall petitions.

  17. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    The standard laid out in journal article you posted that liberals demanded.

  18. jjf says:

    He’s not even out of office.  If he held a press conference tomorrow and said he’d changed his mind, what would you say?

  19. Le Roi du Nord says:

    k:

    Do you mean this standard?

    “Walker didn’t call for special elections to fill those seats despite a law that requires them to be held promptly”.

  20. jjf says:

    Reporter @RobertMentzer: “Something I learned today that I had not realized: The governor cannot legally call a special election until after Rep. Sean Duffy has actually resigned. I am told no announcement from Evers on that until 9/23 at least.”

  21. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Oh please, you libs were far more aggressive than that.

    Amazing how passive you have become with Evers.

  22. Le Roi du Nord says:

    jjf:

    Those amazing facts always cause k to blame others.  So predictable.

  23. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    that was blame?

    Just observing how passive you have become on special election issues all of a sudden.

    Frankly I don’t care when this election is called.  Just nailing you for your awful double standad on this one.

  24. Le Roi du Nord says:

    You are blaming Evers, and me by association, for following the law (see above).  No double “standad”, no passivity, just law abiding, that’s me.

  25. Kevin Scheunemann says:

    Nord,

    No one asked you to advocate violating the law, only be as zealous for enforcing the law as foaming liberals were on Walker.

    So far, I am not feeling the urgency form you like the Journal article.

  26. Le Roi du Nord says:

    There is no urgency needed as Duffy hasn’t left yet.  Jeez, how can you possibly be so dense….?
